>the dead are a pretty generous bunch as far as benefit shows and different foundations(8.6 million Rex Foundation) throughout the years so it kinda nice that someone else besides us fans is giving back to them

But funding for the archive doesn't go to the Dead, they don't get anything out of this as far as I know, unless you count the exposure, but they hardly need that.

I think they benefit from some much needed recognition not coin but more personal satisfaction that they got picked for the grant. I don't know if their generiousity has anything to do with them getting choosen for the grant but if the Dead were not as giving with their time and money they may not have been picked in the first place. Hope that makes sense cause my answer kinda confuses me. Kinda like when you help someone out but don't want anything in return then years later you end up on the receiving end. Plus its gotta be cool to know you are a part of something that is getting preserved for all to see on on that kind of a level.

I really doubt the band's previous or current philanthropy had anything to do with this grant process, but yeah, it's all about preserving the past. Libraries, museums, etc., have thousands of projects like this. I'm for it. It can't all be done through private donations. Most of this stuff simply wouldn't happen if it all required private donations.

The archive got even more $$$ from the wealthy CEO of Seagate Technologies in nearby Scotts Valley! Heads might be one of those few groups, who could support their own pet projects. The KPFA Grateful Dead Marathons bring in lots of $$$ from us too. Any word on the 2011 sixteen hour journey into the vault?
